Lost and Found

Every now and then, we forget things or lose things on the court or in the gym or at a tournament or somewhere. Check here periodically to see where your lost or forgotten stuff has ended up. If you have found something belonging to another pickleball player, just let us know at abqpickleball@gmail.com and we will post the information here. Just be sure to include your contact information so the owner can contact you. Also, if you have found your stuff here, please post a reply on this page so we know all is well. Thanks!

Steven, staff member at RGS, currently has in his possession these expensive-looking glasses, which one of our players appears to have left there.

The glasses case has Rafael Torres’ business card inside it, but I understand that these glasses are not his and he doesn’t know who they belong to.
